There are very few people in our lives that you just know are good seeds. People you can always count on and trust to be there for you no matter where life takes you. People that you can see only once a year, yet it seems like not a day has passed since you’ve seen each other last.
I have a very small number of friends that fall under this category, but one of them is my friend Sarah. We became friends in high school, and she’s been cracking me up ever since. She’s the type of person that I’m constantly amazed by because of her perseverance and insane courage to try anything and everything in life. Sarah hasn’t always had the easiest road in life, and unfortunately her family has fallen on tough times as of late. Sarah’s younger brother, Kent, recently passed away after a long battle with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy. Sarah’s parents have devoted their lives to caring for her brother and are now struggling with the everyday bills that most of us take for granted.
Two of our mutual friends, who also happen to be on my short list of amazing people, have put together a website to accept donations to help Sarah’s family in this difficult time. I know that there are tons of people in the world that are in need, but I can honestly say that a donation to this family is something that I’m very passionate about. Sarah and her family are such selfless and courageous people and I want to make this difficult time for them as easy as possible. Please visit the donation website below and help this great family in need.

And because posts are always better with pictures, here is a picture of some of my best high school friends at a recent wedding (Sarah in the middle, and me to left).
Yes, we’re all adorable. And if Sarah’s charming face doesn’t get you, please go visit her blog. She’s an amazing writer and just about the funniest girl I know. Really. She makes me pee my pants when I read her stories. Enjoy!
P.S. If you see a random YouTube video at the end of this post, I apologize. I have no idea where it came from and I’m trying to figure it out! Thanks!
